Beautiful LEGO is a curated gallery of mind-boggling, awe-inspiring, and masterful LEGO creations. It features the work of some of the most creative minds working in LEGO today, whose art ranges from incredibly lifelike replicas of everyday objects-a slice of pie, an antique phone, a classic keyboard synthesizer-to evocative and unusual imaginings of spaceships, mansions, characters, and creatures of all kinds. Each sculpture is incredibly unique, ambitious, clever, and artful. As you pour through the book again and again, you'll find something novel and jaw-dropping on each page.
